Unfortunately, menopause is still taboo in the workplace. As a result, women suffer in silence, hiding their symptoms and struggling with a loss of confidence caused by natural mental and physical changes impacting their bodies.
A recent Australian study has found that 83% of women who had experienced menopause said it negatively affected their work, but 70% would not feel comfortable talking to their manager.
Menopause occurs when women have gathered extensive career experience and are more likely to assume leadership positions—however, the severity of symptoms may lead them to resign, retire or even ask for a demotion. Developing a Menopause Friendly workplace helps businesses to retain talent, skills and invaluable experience. It also minimises the impact menopause has on productivity and performance.
In this exclusive webinar, ‘Don’t Sweat It” course founders Shelly Horton and Dr Ginni Mansberg will explain what your business can do to become a menopause supportive workplace.
